Massive 12m tree in my garden. Drops flowers seeds twigs constantly through the day and I have to sweep the deck every day - it’s ridiculous. But I have no idea what the name of the tree is - any ideas? It’s evergreen, pink flowers around 2cm long, rough bark.

Don’t know, but it looks very exotic.

I think it might be a puriri tree, based on the picture... it's usually found in New Zealand and unusual in the UK!

A puriri could be it! It has a very fat kereru that lives in it! Thank you!

It has a very fat kereru that lives in it! So you're not in the UK, then? grin

Nope, moved back from the Peak District to good old NZ

Ooh, looks very likely to be a puriri then, if you're in NZ! smile
